Our house is in need of some work. We started noticing little things last year but we just haven’t had the time or money to fix them up. That hasn’t stopped me from imagining how I would improve our home if we could. I find myself on the HGTV website all the time looking for eco-friendly ways to improve our home and redecorate.
We have several projects we need to tackle. We want to use sustainable materials to put new siding on our house and add some solar panels for energy efficiency. Our long-time goal has been to have a run-off drainage system to collect rainwater for watering the garden. Most importantly, both of our bathrooms need overhauls because the previous owners took short cuts which have caused mold to build up. Black mold is a silent killer and causes all sorts of health problems. We really need to get it out before it causes damage to our family’s health.
We have thought about refinancing but we didn’t want to pay the closing costs and go through all the paperwork again. Fortunately, we found a great alternative with the FHA refinancing rates. Through their streamline system we don’t have to do the massive amounts of paperwork involved in refinancing. They use the original paperwork from our mortgage to complete the process. We can even structure it so there are no out-of-pocket expenses for us. This will free up some money and make our daily living more sustainable.
There’s some good news for veterans, too. They have a VA streamline refinance program for honorably discharged veterans with mortgages in good standing. My father was a veteran and I really appreciate any programs that support those who have serve our country.
We can’t wait to start working on our much-needed home improvements. Everything we want to do will reduce our expenses and improve the quality of our home environment. I can’t wait to get started.
What would you change in your home to make it more healthy and eco-friendly?
